I finished this accordion fold journal today. The cover paper is one of my favorite ways to get sheets of painted paper. Whenever I paint paper or fabric, I lay a large sheet of paper under my work, as a table cover. Eventually this paper becomes layered and beautiful and I will add it to my painted paper stash. I usually use 80 lb acid free drawing paper to paint on. This paper is heavy enough to take lots of layers of paint and can still be folded and sewn easily for book-making projects.
